Good Saturday Morning 03/19/05

  1. Can you believe that spring is supposed to arrive tomorrow? Try telling that to most of the US right now and they would think that you were crazy.....

    Had an extremely busy day at work today with lunch at 3pm. Glad that it is over, and a break from it until tomorrow, then back to more of the same. Some things should be better as I usually get the same patients for the time that I am there, if they stay for those days.........we try to keep the continuity going, makes it better for the patient as well as the family. And we have family-centered care, even in our ICU. Which I happen to like......

    Hey everybody,

    Haven't posted on the GM thread for a while, been really busy lately. DFS and JACHO inspections at work for annual revalidation, plus midterms at school. Sigh...just don't have enough hours in the day.

    Personally I'm glad spring is around the corner, I hate the cold dreariness of winter. Hope everything is going well with all the regular posters.

    Buenas Dias!

    At work. Just read a memo about two hospitals reporting that in February individuals faslely represented themselves as Joint commission Accreditation Surveyors and attempted to gain access to their facilities. Both incidents occurred at approx 3 a.m. Another incident happened in March. So be careful Nurseboy

    It is raining here. Hopefully that will keep people out of the ER today.

    Good morning all!!

    It's been a busy week! I'm glad so it's the weekend!
    Angie-what kind of camera did you get? I bought a new one last night at Wal-Mart and have been playing with it. It's a Sony Cyber-shot. I have another Sony, but it's so big and bulky. I am going to New York City in April on a school trip with my son. I really wanted something I could use for travel. I'm so excited about going to NYC. I haven't traveled like this in years.

    The contractor wants us to pack up the kitchen now. The drywaller was here mudding and taping yesterday. I don't see how they can be ready for the kitchen yet, so I'm not in a hurry to move everything. I plan to pack up what I don't use right now!

    I hope everyone feels healthy now!! I finally felt human again by Wednesday! I'd better get going!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday!!!

    Good morning to all. Who's got the food. I'd love to have a big ol' cin. roll!!!
    For a change, I got to this post while it's still the same day!
    On call. 7am today, till 7 a Monday. I'm too superstitous (?sp) to talk too much about it.
    Busy week in the OR for me. Busy sched. all days, lots of call in's as well.
    We are a small rural hospital, FULL right now. Lots of flu, etc. We've been on diversion several times. Actually cancelled a few elective cases because no where to put them post op!
    I heard about the bogus JACHO visits as well. Funny they all tried during the middle of the night!
    Anyone hear about the Ohio nurses, I think, that gave laxatives to pts to cause more work for day shift......they were brought up on criminal charges!! Great...that's what we need..more bad press on nurses! :angryfire

    Have a good weekend every one!!! Here's to not hearing the phone/beeper all weekend :roll

    Greetings from sunny Florida. A cool but gorgeous morning. Gotta walk the beach later. Not much on the agenda here. I still have a bit of Chemistry to do. Been doing a little bit every day, so as not to get too far behind.

    Angie, good luck. Sounds like you're working very hard!

    Barbiedee, hope you continue to post to these threads.

    Walking on the beach . . . . . . sigh.

    One of our patient's family brought in those donut everyone raves about . . . what are they called? . . oh, Krispy Kreme. I sent them down to the nurse's station.

    I'm sleepy - gotta get up and pretend I'm walking on the beach, feeling a warm breeze . . .

    The Walgreens accross the street is open 24 hours and have Krispy Kremes delivered every day, but so far I've resisted. (But haven't resisted a "Dove" ice cream bar....hehehe)

    I just walked down to the nurse's station and the box is sitting there upopened but it is med pass time and breakfast trays are out. I'm not craving sweets anyway - been eating Everlasting Gobstoppers all morning.
